Majoring in English at California Lutheran University sharpens your critical thinking, reading, and communication skills — abilities that will serve you well on any career path.


Get paid experience

In addition to your classes, you’ll be able to take on paid positions that allow you to build your teaching and leadership skills. These opportunities include internships, departmental assistantships, editing the award-winning literary magazine Morning Glory, and tutoring in the Writing Center.

Go beyond the books themselves

Travel seminars will allow you to experience the locations where great literary works first came to life. By studying up-close the cultures and histories that inspired these works, you’ll gain a more complete understanding of these important writings — and a greater appreciation of them.

Publicly present your research and original works

Performing research, writing critical analysis, and creating original works will all be integral parts of your coursework — the results of which you can present at local, regional, and national conferences. Also, the culmination of your major will be a public presentation of your capstone project.
